The Babylon Line, a play by Richard Greenberg

Event Date: 
October 26, 2018 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

The Colonial Players presents 'The Babylon Line,' by Richard Greenberg.

Levittown, 1967. It’s the first night of an adult-ed creative writing course at the local high school. The teacher, Aaron Port, lives in Greenwich Village and reverse commutes once a week on the Long Island Rail Road’s Babylon line. His students are a bit of a mixed bag: so many potential writers, so many tales to be told. Aaron is, of course, the storyteller-in-chief, and it is his wry and rueful recollections of that season in Levittown that frame the proceedings. As the actors take on multiple roles as characters in each other’s stories, the audience is gifted with an engaging tableau of love, loss, and the yearning for understanding in 1960s suburbia. Mr. Greenberg allows all his characters their moments in the authorial spotlight, with narratives that inevitably become more and more self-revealing, as no one’s story is as simple as it first might seem.

The Babylon Line is directed by Jennifer Cooper, and features Ron Giddings, Jack Leitess, Mary MacLeod, Lindsey Miller, Robin Schwartz, Jeff Sprague, and Alicia Sweeney.
